These cottages were a fantastic find for us! Working frequently in the area for up to a month at a time, we were desperate to find accommodation that allowed us... read more some home comforts and the ability to cater for ourselves. We found that....and so much more!
We've already stayed twice in the Glenmorangie (one-bedroom end of row cottage) and immediately made sure to book for all of our events for the next year.
Fantastic location with breath-taking views over the River Clyde/Erskine Bridge - sunrise and sunset -wow! Well-equipped. Spotlessly clean. Large walk-in shower. Comfortable. Parking available. Conveniently situated for Loch Lomond in one direction...Glasgow the other.
And to add even more positives - a lovely 'welcome basket' awaits you on arrival stocked with milk, butter, bread, eggs, jam/marmalade, cereals, shortbread, teacakes and a small bottle of the local whisky.
All communication with Alex was clear, helpful and friendly - another bonus!
We highly recommend these cottages.
Our 7-day stay at Gavinburn cottages in Old Kilpatrick Scotland was all that we could have hoped for. The location and accommodation were ideal. Our hosts spared no effort to... read more ensure we enjoyed all the comfort and convenience of the Glenmorangie unit. Views from the cottage, set in the most tranquil farm area, were outstanding. Access to and from Glasgow city and airport, and some of the most beautiful scenery the west of Scotland offers is so easy.

Just back from a week staying in The Macallan cottage at Gavinburn, what a perfect holiday location. The best equipped self catering cottage we have ever stayed in, every detail... read more thought of, comfortable and so cosy in the autumn evenings with the log burner fire on looking out over the twinkling lights below.
Location is perfect, hill walking on your doorstep with fantastic views.

Our host Alex kept us informed at all times and was excellent in dealing with a brief wifi issue, great service.
Don’t hesitate in booking Gavinburn Cottages, they live up to everything they promise and we have no doubt we are coming back soon. More
Stayed in the Glenmorangie cottage for a week in July 2022. The property is nothing short of superb. Beautifully furnished and equipped throughout. The views are exceptional, with an elevated... read more vista over the Erskine Bridge from the lounge and down the Firth of Clyde from the bedroom. Plenty of parking and a lovely front garden shared only with the other residents.
Also of note a fantastic walk from the front door over to Loch Humphrey reservoir and the Kilpatrick Hills. And the most opulent welcome pack ever!
With close family in the area, we’ll definitely be back, availability permitting.
As a couple we recently stayed in the Glenmorangie cottage for a week. We have stayed in countless self-catering properties over the years and would count this one among the... read more very best of them.
The cottage is clean, modern, fresh.

They have thought of everything!
On top of all that, the location is superb with stunning views and convenient for exploring Loch Lomond and hiking in the Trossachs as well as walking in the local Kilpatrick Hills and visiting Glasgow.
We didn't have any direct contact with Alex or Leigh-Anne during our stay and appreciated the contactless check-in/check-out with the convenient key safe just outside the cottage door. Alex and Leigh-Anne were in contact before our arrival and provided all the directions and information we needed. They also made it clear that they were readily available in case we needed them for anything.
All in all a most enjoyable stay. We rarely if ever stay at the same place twice, but we would love to stay at Gavinburn Cottages again.

Once again an amazing experience at Gavinburn. Third time here and we’ll be back. Luxury accommodation and spotlessly clean, all credit to Alex and his team.

We have just completed our week break at Gavinburn cottages. This was our second visit this time staying in Glenmorangie cottage. Beautiful house with every home comfort and... read more outstanding views. Loved seeing the cows and sheep on opening the curtains each morning.
Gavinburn is ideally situated for
sightseeing in this area by public transport or further afield by car.
Very well placed for golfers as many courses nearby and I am sûre Alex could give you more information on these than myself .
Great for visiting family as we did.
We hope to come back with the grandchildren . Children would love to see the animals and play in the garden and explore the hills behind the cottage.
Only the famous scottish weather let us down.
Thank you so much to Alex and
Leigh-Anne without whom this paradise would not exist. They are wonderful hosts.
This had to be one of the best returns to Scotland we have had, staying three weeks in the Glenmorangie Cottage.
The owners Alex and Leigh - Ann,had... read more thought of everything to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable with a food and drinks package on arrival and checks to see that we had arrived and settled in OK.
We discovered that the location of the cottages is excellent with the airport close by, Glasgow City only a short drive away and Loch Lomond and the Trossacs on our doorstep.
We found the views from the Cottages south east over the Erskine Bridge and south west across the River Clyde to Greenock to be spectacular and it’s even better to watch the sun go down or see the bridge in all its glory when the lights come on.
It’s just like living in a farm with hielin coos feeding in the fields around the cottages, sheep and they’re newly born lambs playing in the burn that runs through the fields, the most beautiful horses in the paddocks as you drive too and from the cottages and not to forget the wildlife with eagles flying above, foxes running past and the occasional hare bouncing through the long grass.
Also, if you fancy a wee walk in the Old Kilpatrick Hills then, you’re almost there. We also discovered that just North of the Cottages is Loch Humphrey, a popular walk with the locals and if you have time I recommend that you don’t miss the opportunity to walk to the top and see the views from there. Also, it’s a great spot for a picnic.
Finally, I would recommend Gavinburn Cottages to anyone looking for accommodation with very high standards in the best ever location you could ask for.
